Re: Who do you want to miss out on the play offs?

My heart says Leeds:
I want a nice day out if we get to Wembley. We might be able to have that sharing public transport and pubs with Sheff Wed or Huddersfield fans. It wouldn't be the same if it was Leeds fans.

My head says Fulham
I do not want to have to play them again this year.

according to some presenter on Talksport (least reliable source known to man) a PL player told him that it's because other footballers don't like Alli, as he acts like a right pcunt on the pitch.

Re: PFA Teams Of The Year

Nothing too controversial in the Premiership one, unless you are a fan of one of the big teams and want to claim that your players are better. If that is Man City, you might be surprised that de Bruyne isn't picked ahead of Mane, perhaps; if you are an Arsenal fan, maybe it should have been Sanchez....

Re: Top 7 predictions

Chelsea
Man City
Arsenal
Spurs
Man Utd
Liverpool
Everton

Chelsea are the best team, Man City have the best players, Arsenal always finish above Spurs and Spurs should still get into the Champions League. I am a big fan of Mourinho and of Klopp, but their players aren't very good.

Re: I'm bored - Random football questions

Club you would love to see in the Premier League Celtic and Rangers: 60,000 crowds, fantastic derby games and some real edge to their other games on occasion. Let them join the Championship next year, and it won't be too long after that they can improve and get promotion. Club you'd love to see slid...

Re: Best/Worst Pundit

Best:
Chris Sutton was good recently. Jermaine Jenas is good. Gary Neville might be the best.

Worst
Glenn Hoddle has been a right miseryguts recently, spoiling the England games almost as much as the players.

Re: Championship 2016-17 - General Discussion

Do people need any more proof that the Championship is a gash standard? Competitive so entertaining, but a really sh*t standard. Shit standard compared to PL/Bundesliga/La Liga ofc. Compared to most other leagues in Europe I reckon it's equal if not better. Exactly. Norwich (and Villa) struggling a...

Re: The England Manager Disaster Thread sponsored by Big Fat Sam's pint of wine.

Shuffling the deckchairs. Won't matter one jot without looking at the players five to ten years away from being pros. Wenger would do that though. He could take control of all England Men's football, from schoolboys up, getting them playing the right way, and not losing talented Arsenal strikers to...

I think he is an awful manager, but feel for him here. I don't think I even want him to lose his job any more. Being set up by journalists is not a crime. Consorting with real criminals would be but not this. Maybe even discussing things with real criminals would be OK if he really did say the bit a...

Some absolute tit texting radio berks to say Garath should pay for everyone's tickets and travel if we lose.

Re: Next England Manager

I was mortally disappointed with the appointment, but he won his first game with the last kick - perhaps we will benefit from a lucky manager for a couple of years now.

Also, the defence looked a little better (I agree about Stones) and the passing that avoided Rooney looked quite good.

Horrible news. He has been sacked twice because his teams played rubbish football.

We'll get lowest-common denominator football from now on in an era when we will have some of the best players in the world.
